30 years ago

Thirty years ago today Whitesnake released the self titled album that everybody refers to as “1987”. Recorded over a long period of time by David Coverdale (band leader and vocalist), John Sykes (guitar), Neil Murray (bass), Aynsley Dunbar (drums) and Don Airey (keyboards), this was a line up that would never tour. Instead, once the album blew out the door, a line up of good looking talent (Vivian Campbell, Tommy Aldridge, Rudy Sarzo and Adrian Vandenberg) was drafted and with videos that had Davids then wife Tawny Kitaen strutting her stuff all over them the band went on to sell 8,000,000 copies in the US alone. It was the era of MTV and Whitesnake did rule for some time. It must be said that 30 years on, it still sounds (and looks) terrific.
